mediaLuscious Design + Art Review


Dates:
Sat Mar 05, 2011 06:00 - Sat Mar 05, 2011

Location:
Boston, Massachusetts
United States of America

Dynamic Media Institute ( DMI ) is up to its old tricks again, planning to usher in the 2011 semester with an amazing new show — mediaLuscious Design + Art Review. mediaLuscious will feature the eclectic, forward-thinking prototypes and simulations from MassArt’s MFA Graduate Design students. Their work includes: immersive video and sound installations; performance art; onscreen interface design; dynamic narrative; and interactive gaming scenarios.
Students at DMI leverage the latest new media technologies to transform seemingly ordinary objects and traditional artworks into innovative, experimental interfaces exploring the future of communication and designed participatory experience.
“The ultimate purpose behind mediaLuscious is to create new exposure and greater awareness for the creative work that DMI continuously produces,” says Tania Ostorga co-curator of the exhibition. “Its important to get the work out in front of the public often and see how they respond to the mind-opening array of work inspired by the program.”
“This is a critical year for Dynamic Media Institute — a true milestone to celebrate,” co-curator lou suSi explains. “And we’ve lined up several ambitious and intriguing shows to make this 10th year of DMI a special one, filled with the thought-provoking work of current students, faculty and legendary alumni that make up this international family of innovative, interdisciplinary, creative thinkers.”
Alex Wang, co-curator of the show elaborates further, “This is a great chance to bring our work to life. Its inspiring to see an audience playing with our creations, and a bit unpredictable. Each student brings their unique professional backgrounds and personality to DMI and it shows in exhibits like mediaLuscious.”
Co-curated by Dynamic Media Institute's Tania Ostorga, Alex Wang and lou suSi — the mediaLuscious show includes the works of Alison Kotin, David Tamés, Daniel Buckley, Nicole Tariverdian, Jeff Bartell, Maria Stangel, Zach Kaiser, Chris Field, Joseph Liberty, Andrew Ellis, Tania Ostorga, Alex Wang and lou suSi.
Who:
Graduate Students, Alumni and Faculty of MassArt’s Dynamic Media Institute (DMI).

Where:

The Pozen Center at MassArt 621 Huntington Ave. Boston, MA 02116 (At Longwood on the Green E Line).

When:

Saturday March 5, 2011, 6:00 – 10:00pm

OPPORTUNITY

Provocative Objects: the extradition


Deadline:
Sun Oct 24, 2010 00:00

On Friday, November 12, 2010 { 10 | 11 | 12 } in The Patricia Doran Gallery at The Massachusetts College of Art and Design, please join us for the cyberSurreal, interdisciplinary and immersive exhibit-event & experience:

Provocative Objects: the extradition

Gallery doors will open at 6pm for the official reception and performative fun. The full event functionality will officially run until 10pm { or beyond } with a casual afterparty celebration to follow at a nearby area venue.

Co-curated by The Dynamic Media Institute's veryOwn David Tamés and lou suSi, Provocative Objects thusfar includes the eclectic works of Alison Kotin { DMI }, Courtney Lockemer { SIM }, Ellen Godena { Mobius }, Scott Murray { DMI and beyond }, Colin Owens { DMI and Shapemix }, Joshua Dolby { caughtYOUpicking | Screwdriver.tv }, Phillippe Lejeune, David Tamés, lou suSi, Laugh Foundation and other artists, designers & performers. Featured musical act: Stereo Soul Future { including CK Field from DMI }.

We are currently accepting informal but professional calls for work and participation for Provocative Objects. To submit a proposal, contact lou suSi via email at cheese at hotsects dot com. Here is the short, original email-delivered description of the show & the sort of work we're looking to inspire & include:

We are looking for pieces that instigate the viewer-participant-gallerygoer or blur the line and leave the audience wondering. Physical traditional art objects — dynamic prototypes — video, performative and conceptual work — we’re looking to collect an eclectic body of work to provoke viewer-participant exploration, thought, discussion and interaction. There will be a vaguely-defined ‘stageSpace’ for certain event-related ‘performances’ throughout the evening as well as numerous ‘objects’ or installations.

For more information, feel free to call lou at 617.750.2922 or email cheese at hotsects dot com. More information to follow at this page and other social web & 'out there' augmented informational destinations.

We hope to see you there!
